Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure and honor to express our warmest welcome to all colleagues participating in the TDDW 2014, which will be held at Kaohsiung Exhibition Center in Kaohsiung , Taiwan from October 3 to 5, 2014.

Patient-centered healthcare, which requires multi-disciplinary integration, has become the mainstay of modern medicine, and the management of digestive diseases is a prime example of such integration. Taking care of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, for example, involves the devotion of gastroenterologists, hepatologists, radiologists, oncologists, and surgeons. And the evolution of mini-invasive surgery such as laparoscopic operation plus the wide application of endoscopic resection, such as endoscopic submucosal dissection, have blurred the traditional border between physicians and surgeons. Hence, there is a need for the four digestive societies in Taiwan, namely the Gastroenterological Society of Taiwan (GEST), the Digestive Endoscopy Society of Taiwan (DEST), the Taiwan Association for the Study of the Liver (TASL), and the Taiwan Surgical Society of Gastroenterology (TSSG), to establish a platform for their members to communicate and exchange knowledge with each other. As a result, the Taiwan Digestive Disease Week (TDDW) was successfully held to provide the optimal venue for sharing and learning from October 7 to 10, 2011 at the National Defense Medical Center in Taipei, Taiwan.

The other six digestive medicine-associated societies, including the Taiwan Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (TSPGHAN), the Taiwan Liver Cancer Association (TLCA), the Taiwan Pancreas Society ,the Taiwan Society of Coloproctology, the Chinese Oncology Society and Taiwan Association of Medical Screening, uniting together to co-host this meeting in 2014. The scientific program committee have prepared fruitful programs including the Postgraduate course -- Frontiers in gastroenterology & hepatology; New therapy for hepatitis, Advance of endoscopic diagnosis and intervention of early GI cancer, Digestive diseases associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome; GERD consensus in Taiwan,NSAID gastropathy in post-H.pylori era; Colorectal cancer screening:; Irritable bowel syndrome/Inflammatory bowel diseases in Asia-Pacific region, and Multimodality therapy in managing biliary malignancies and hepatocellular carcinoma. Moreover, a lot of world-leading scholars will give us a global perspective on recent advances of digestive medicine In addition to the oral and poster sessions, the young investigator award (YIA) will be provided to encourage the active participation of this meeting from other Asian counties. The 1st rank winner will receive US$3,000, in addition to complimentary registration to the TDDW 2014 and free accommodation for 3 nights. 

As the President of the Taiwan Digestive Disease Week (TDDW) 2014, I am expecting active participation of our colleagues including gastroenterologists, hepatologists, pediatricians, endoscopists, oncologists, and surgeons from Taiwan as well as invited delegates from all over the world. This forum will offer an invaluable opportunity for sharing the most updated knowledge in all fields of digestive diseases.

I envisage the Taiwan Digestive Disease Week (TDDW) 2014 will be a fruitful and successful event with your participation.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Kaohsiung in October, 2014.

Sincerely yours!
